Heroes of Hellas 2: Olympia

This entry was posted in Casual Games, Logic Puzzles, Match 3, Software by Snowfoxx on

Fun Factor:★★★★★ 

I used to play Heroes of Hellas quite a bit back in the day. After a few drive upgrades later, I sort of lost the game, and never got a new copy. I was pleasantly surprised to find a couple of sequels has been made since then. Heroes of Hellas 2: Olympia goes much further in depth than the original, and we are doing so much more than merely hunting down heroes to help us in a quest. Anyone who loves classical mythology and legends should give this a try. Our new challenge is to build a grand city from the town of Olympia. It is the one bright spot in Greece that was not destroyed when a vicious demon escaped from Tartarus. So not only are we hunting new heroes, we are also getting help from the gods and titans as refugees come to Olympia to forge out a new life. With every new puzzle, comes a new challenge, so it is never the same puzzle twice. You play in a match 3 mode at the start, but later on things become vastly different. There are new tools added as you gain new heroes, as well.

Murder Island: Secret of Tantalus

Fun Factor:★★★☆☆ 

This is a hidden object mystery game set in one of the Greek islands in the Aegean Sea. You are brought in by a tiny commuter plane to the island of Tantalus, named for the king that so angered the gods that he was set in Tartarus for eternity and cursed with non-stop thirst, with his body chained to a peach tree immersed in a spring. His head was chained back, so he cannot lower his head to drink from the spring, nor can he reach the fruit on the branch right above his head to eat it to let the juice quench his thirst. Such is a fitting place for a murder mystery. You are brought to the island for a class reunion. Tantalus looks like most serene Greek tourist destinations. The blue-trimmed whitewashed buildings, the soft, sandy beaches, and all kinds of classical period artwork everywhere depicting the Greek gods and heroes. You are given a guidebook and a map, and the map will become one of the best tools you can have. When you have explored an area, and you have to go back to it, instead of going through other areas to get there, you can map travel to that place, similar to the map travel used in Guild Wars.
